Background:

DMG Consulting LLC, a leading provider of contact center, back-office and real-time analytics market research and consulting services, today released its 2016 Contact Center Workforce Management Product and Market Report. DMG’s ninth annual report on workforce management (WFM) delivers a comprehensive analysis of vendors, products, pricing and operational information for this sector. The 381-page Report is designed to help organizations select the right solution, technology, functionality and partner to meet their existing and future front- and back-office WFM needs.

2015 was a good year for the WFM market. The number of WFM seats increased by 10.6%, and the number of customers by 7.7%. The market is poised for even greater growth in 2016, as a new generation of WFM solutions comes to market with capabilities and features that address the traditional needs of contact centers as well as the unique requirements of back offices and branches. Another factor driving market growth is the availability of WFM capabilities in the cloud, making these solutions attractive and easy to access for businesses large and small, in all verticals. DMG expects the number of seats in the WFM market to increase by 11% in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and by 12% in 2019 and 2020.

“The WFM market has come alive,” said Donna Fluss, president of DMG Consulting. “The large size of the addessable market for back-office WFM seats is encouraging vendors to invest in enhancing their solutions. Although most of the new features and capabilities are intended for back offices, many enhancements are very valuable for the contact center, as well. This much-needed round of improvements is capturing the attention of end users who are hungry for new and improved WFM systems.”

The 2016 Workforce Management Product and Market Report provides an in-depth analysis of the WFM market, competitors, suites, competitive landscape, innovation, end-user satisfaction, as well as market, business and servicing trends and challenges. It analyzes WFM market activity and provides 5-year market projections. Nine leading and contending vendors are covered: Aspect, Calabrio, inContact, Interactive Intelligence, Intradiem, NICE, Teleopti, Verint and WorkFlex. inContact, Intradiem and WorkFlex are covered at a higher level.
